  • Conclusion: I like the Innocent Devils enough, but the combat needed to be more in depth and there really needed to be more of a platform element in order for this game to find its muse. The series is taking steps in the right direction, but it's just not hitting the ball out of the park yet.

  • Conclusion: Curse of Darkness will take about ten hours to complete. Players who have to collect everything will probably have to triple that time. You’ll unlock a few extra modes after beating the game, but there isn’t anything extraordinary here to warrant a second or third playthrough.
